Proof of vaccination? Then no testing needed, says Belize 

TORONTO — Belize is allowing vaccinated travellers to enter the county without having to present a negative COVID-19 test.

Travellers who enter Belize through the airport and provide proof of COVID-19 immunization are no longer required to present a negative test result for entry, according to a new health order now in effect.

Vaccinated travellers must present the COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, and the vaccine must have been administered at least two weeks prior to arrival.

Non-vaccinated travellers are still required to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 96 hours of travel or a negative rapid Antigen test taken within 48 hours of travel to Belize. If passengers fail to present a negative PCR or antigen test, travellers can get one at the airport at the traveler’s expense, for US$50.



Belize’s Ministry of Health and Wellness has also expanded testing to facilitate all persons departing from Belize for travel to the U.S. and other countries that require a negative test result for entry. Canada requires a 72-hour PCR test.

Belize says the decision to ease the restriction on travellers who have received the COVID vaccine has been facilitated by the reduction in daily new cases across the country. “Belize has been very successful in its efforts to control the transmission of COVID-19 over the past few weeks; presently, there are less than 100 active cases countrywide and the numbers have been consistently decreasing,” says the tourism board.

Belize’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign is rolling out throughout the country, and frontline tourism stakeholders will be among those receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine during the early stages of the campaign.
